I a trying to telnet to our exchange server, which is running as part of a sbs2003 setup.

when I type: telnet hostname 25 it wont connect. I can ping the server using its hostname no problem.

I think something is blocking it. I am no expert on exchange. Perhaps it isnt configured to allow connections on port 25 on the internal network connection.

Can anyone help.
